how to stop Windows 7 restart after automatic update

Most of the Windows 7 box is configured to do automatic update during mid-night and it will restart your machine.

You may leave your windows 7 running because it is providing services. It might have several VMware guests running on top. A brutal restart by Windows 7 can be horrible.

1 Click the Start menu and type
gpedit.msc
in the search line and press the enter key. This will launch the Local Group Policy Editor.

2

On the left side of Local Group Policy Editor, expand to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components. Then scroll down and select Windows Update.

3

Double click “No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatic updates installations” option. In the properties window that appears, change the option from “Not Configured” to “Enabled". Click “OK” and close Local Group Policy Editor. Windows will no longer prompt you to restart after automatically installing updates.

install pdflib on cpanel server

If you install directly from within WHM, you will have errors, either

Code:

configure: error: pdflib.h not found!

or

Code:

PDFlib extension requires at least pdflib 4.0.x.
See config.log for more information.

That’s because you haven’t got pdflib-lite installed yet.

If you have a rpm based Linux system, you can download pdflib-lite here
http://pkgs.org/download/centos-5-rhel-5/remi-x86_64/pdflib-lite-7.0.5-1.el5.remi.x86_64.rpm.html

and you also need pdflib-lite-devel

To compile the code, you of course need automake, c etc..

Next download pdflib

Code:

After you got it, run the following

Code:

tar -xvzf pdflib-2.1.8.tgz
cd pdflib-2.1.8
phpize
./configure
./make
./make install

If you don’t have phpize (you would have phpize command not found error), you need to install php-devel package

finally, open /usr/local/lib/php.ini and add one line

Code:

extension=pdf.so

If you have a plain Centos server, you need to create a new file at /etc/php.d/pdf.ini

and add a single line

Code:

extension=pdf.so

Don’t forge to restart httpd

in cpanel, run

/scripts/restartsrv_httpd

In plain Centos, run
/sbin/service restart httpd

To test it, create a file called test.php and input one line

PHP:

<?php
phpinfo();

now run this test.php in your browser, you should see the pdflib exntension

bmi.js

Today I have problem with the ADSL in office and I have to connect the HTC Hero provided by T-mobile to browse the Internet and SSH onto our servers for urgent maintenance.

I notice one of our clients’ website got some Javascript injected, right in the html header:

src="http://1.2.3.8/bmi-int-js/bmi.js"

My heart sinks and I thought that account is hacked. It turns out that T-Mobile (and Vodafone UK) thinks it is appropriate to insert their own Javascript into each page which I visit, which pipes all images through a proxy to degrade their quality. This will save bandwidth but the images look horrible on a 27″ PC screen. On a HTC hero tiny screen I am sure I will not notice a thing. But there you ago, a false alarm…

Delegate Mailbox Access in Active Directory

When an executive or senior manager wants her administrative assistant to screen her email and handle routine items, she can use Outlook to delegate access to her inbox and calendar. Or a user might go on vacation and want some other user to monitor his messages.

To make yourself a delegate of a user’s mailbox, open the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, and then follow these steps:

  • Right-click the organization domain name, point to View, and then click Advanced Features.
  • Click the Users container (or the organizational unit where the user is located).
  • Right-click the user account, and then select Properties.
  • Click the Exchange Advanced tab.
  • Click the Mailbox Rights button.
  • In the Permission window, click the Add button to add yourself to the list of those whose are allowed to access this mailbox.
  • In the next Permission window, click to select the Allow check box under Full Mailbox Access, and then click Apply to implement the changes.
